with michelle obama and tonight's speakers have been clearly trying to continue to push romney and tonight particularly with sandra fluke, to push romney to push him to the extremes on cant rasept whereon and social issues that affect women. right now, that's working for obama. you know, people like to take about, well, there is a gap with men, that romney leads on. but i think the obama people figured out, they can keep the gap with women and hispanics and to keep forcing that out. don't let romney close it, which they may have been worried about, with the ann romney speech. i think some of this is a reaction to that. >> you point out, the man we saw on stage, jim sin gel, speaking about business and the way forward. brit, tonight, we have elizabeth warren, the senate candidate in massachusetts and then leading in to president clinton. what do you expect from both speeches? >> well, elizabeth warren's speech has been... put out. i have seen it. i don't think it will surprise anyone. she, like sandra fluke, will be a big hero and a big -- will get a big boost from this audience. it's what

at democratic national convention. we are waiting for vice-president biden and president obama to take the stage. good evening, everyone. i'm megyn kelley. >> i'm bret baier. the president set to accept his party a nomination in front of a capacity crowd here with a speech that aides insist won't be about recreating the newness of 2008, but instead will be about a path for the next four years. >> want to get down if for our fox team coverage on the floor, chris wallace and martha mccould youan and -- bill hemmer. >> michelle obama has testified to barack obama, her husband, the man. and bill clinton talked about the last four years and the record. they are counting on the fot talk about the next four years, where he will take the country. one of the things thalt obama campaign says is that they feel that barack obama -- rather mitt romney made a big mistake by not talking more specifically about his plan. they say barack obama won't make that same mistake in his speech and he will speak in great detail about where he would take the country. they have laid out a set of goals. here's the problem.
